Friday October 4

Mark your calendar for "Materials Day" 2019, sponsored by FedEx Institute of Technology, The University of Memphis, Memphis, TN.

Join us at the 3rd annual Materials Day to explore the materials that impact your world. Everything around us - the clothes to computers to vehicles, materials that improve our health - is made of material stuff. Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) combines engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology principles to solve real-world problems associated with nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, energy, manufacturing, and other major engineering disciplines.

Materials scientists and engineers make our daily lives better by developing materials for health and medicine, improved energy efficiency and advanced manufacturing, among other areas.

Oral presentations from both academic and industrial researchers will showcase ongoing research in the region and promote collaboration and knowledge exchange between institutions and industry. Abstracts will be solicited for undergraduate and graduate for talks and a poster session that will provide a venue for student research presentations and networking.

Featuring breakout sessions on Physics and Chemistry of Materials and Biomaterials, UoM faculty and student presentations, a keynote reception, and interactive poster session with faculty/student presenters.
